Electrical Maintenance

City and Guilds NVQ 2356-99 Level 3 NVQ in Electrotechnical Services Experienced Worker – Electrical Maintenance (April 2014)

The NVQ Level 3 in Electrical Maintenance is completed in your own time using our e-Portfolio system, OneFile. Your assessor will also carry out remote on-site assessments with you and these assessments will contribute towards the completion of this NVQ. This means that you can complete this NVQ as quickly as you wish providing you have the necessary evidence to do so.

The qualification consists of seven units and each unit needs to be complete over three separate occasions. This can be any number of jobs / tasks and does not necessarily mean three separate jobs or three separate locations. The additional unit 399 (AM2) needs to be covered only on one occasion and this is a three day practical assessment taken at an AM2 Centre anywhere in the UK.
